Google Pixel Ecosystem: The Good, The Bad, and The Apple

Surprisingly good, but can it be as good as Apple?

It’s been almost two years since I moved away from the Apple ecosystem to pursue a more open ecosystem which consists of devices from various brands.

After switching I decided to check out Google’s offering and I liked what I saw. I initially purchased the Google Pixel 6 Pro, with the Pixel Buds A and after around a year with the devices I upgraded them to the Pixel 7 Pro, the Pixel Buds Pro and eventually the Google Pixel Watch.

Alongside that, I used an iPad as my primary computer and the Windows computer I built a few years ago for the more demanding tasks.

The Google Pixel ecosystem combined with Google’s smart home products and their apps work well together in what I call the Google ecosystem.

I think Google has done wonders to the ecosystem over the years, but if I compare it to the Apple ecosystem, I still think that they have a long way to go, mainly with perfecting what they already have.

That’s why as someone who used to be fully in the Apple ecosystem and is now in a mixed ecosystem featuring Google devices, I wanted to share the good, the bad and the Apple!
